I don’t know about you, but if this “Intelligent Design” thing gets any bigger, I may go move to a cave. No, I don’t desire to live a Bin Laden lifestyle, but neither do I wish to live in a world where science is not at the center of it. The teaching of evolution is under attack by the religious right and the best way to win the battle is to fight back.
